I am traveling today and I like to remember that people are good. I notice that in general that I tend to resent the person in the seat next to me on the airplane as an imposition and nuisance, usually making some judgments about them in some way or another. Without connection people are just objects in the field. However, now I make a practice of just saying “hi.” I rarely engage in long conversations, but I say hi and lightly connect. Inevitably this little connection humanizes them and I see the human behind the physical object. I can no longer resent them or make judgments about them because they are human beings now. We can do this all day long, turn people into human beings. It is amazing what a difference it can make.
